Microsoft Corp. is making IPv6 the foundation of its next major operating system release, codenamed Longhorn.

Longhorn, expected to be beta tested next year, with release in 2006, will be fully compatible with IPv6, with the new version of the Internet protocols turned on by default and used as the preferred transport, said Sinead O’Donovan, Microsoft product unit manager for Internet protocols. Users will be able to turn off IPv4 and run Longhorn with IPv6 only. There also will be support for the new protocols across Microsoft’s product line of applications, she said.
